On May 7, 2018, the annual Met Gala was held in New York City. If you’ve never heard of the Met Gala, it is a yearly fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of the Art’s Costume Institute and is the opening of the yearly fashion exhibition. The gala is held on the first Monday in May. Attendees of the gala are expected to dress formally but to also fit the theme of the exhibition. Sometimes, the theme of the exhibition makes dressing to fit the formality of the gala hard, but it can be interesting to see how designers interpret the theme.
This year’s exhibition is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and The Catholic Imagination, but the theme for the attendees’ outfits is “Sunday Best”. Since fashion using Catholic imagery would be on display alongside items on loan from the Vatican, many believed that this exhibition would be one of the most controversial exhibitions the Costume Institute ever held. This also posed a problem for the fashion designers who wanted to incorporate Catholic imagery (Such as clerical robes, iconography normally used in the Catholic mass, ect.) in their designs for the attendees at the gala. Some of the designers didn’t mid using Catholic imagery in their designs, while others created designs that are subtitle in their use of the Catholic imagery and are not very controversial at all.
Since this is the first year I’m able to talk about the Met Gala on my blog, I decided to write a post about my favorite looks at the gala. It was hard for me to choose my favorite looks because I wanted my choices to not include a lot of Catholic imagery or, if they do, it doesn’t stand out too much. I also tried to pick some classy looks as well.
Ok! Let’s get started! Continue reading “Top 10 Favorite Looks at the Met Gala 2018”
Spring is almost here so I wanted to go back and revisit my post about my favorite fall/winter trends to see if I actually bought anything I had on my list.

You can read my fall/winter favorite trends post here.

It’s that time of the year when there are parties to go to, which means there are Holiday dresses in the stores! I normally do not need to wear a nice dress for a party, but I still like to look at them and think about if I’d like to wear them or not and where I’d wear them at. Since I have so many dresses I like, I wanted to talk about the dresses trends I’ve found that I really like and why I like them so much.

While Black Friday shopping last month, I decided to go into stores I do not normally go into. I discovered some of the new stores had items I wanted for a good price, but they were sold out of my size. Still, I am happy I went into these stores and I now have new stores to shop at in the future.
One of the stores I went to is Charlotte Russe. I never shopped there before, but they had a very good sale (Everything $20 USD and under) and I found a shirt and a sweater I couldn’t find in any other store.

Last week was Thanksgiving and Black Friday and, even though it’s the week after, I wanted to talk about what I bought on sale or while I was shopping.
The first place I shopped at is Target. I didn’t buy a lot of things in the Black Friday sale, but I still needed everything I bought. So, I’m happy with my haul.

Thanksgiving is next week and so is Black Friday. Although I’m more concerned about making a Thanksgiving meal for my family, I wanted to plan ahead for Black Friday. That way, I won’t need to worry about hunting for deals. Fortunately, many of the stores I wanted to shop at already released previews or ads for their Black Friday deals. So, here are a few of the deals I’m looking forward to.

Fall is here and the stores put their fall/winter clothing out. Although it’s still too hot in Arizona to even consider wearing a sweater, I wanted to share my favorite trends for fall/winter 2017/2018.
